Olympic Games silver medalist Yohan Blake copped his third sprint double at the Jamaican national track and field championships on Sunday, winning the 200 meters in 19.97 seconds.

It was just the second 200m race of the year for Blake who also won the 100m on Friday night and says he is pleased with how his comeback is progressing.

“I have been working for this, making my comeback. I just want to keep doing,” he said. Blake dominated a 200m field that was without superstar Usain Bolt, as he easily beat Commonwealth Games champion Rasheed Dwyer (20.26) and World and Olympic medalist Warren Weir (20.39).
